The K2 Advisors Group is a team of experienced, passionate professionals that know it's possible to make healthcare benefits actually beneficial

We have years of experience working with businesses that want to take care of their employees AND control costs.

Our clients were tired of the constantly increasing risks and premiums of healthcare benefits. They wanted to stop having the yearly battle between offering benefits that matter to their employees and keeping money where it's critically needed in the business.

By using proven tactics, our innovative approach and a carefully curated network of trusted partners, we help our clients spend less money and offer better benefits.

That's the K2 Advisors Group difference.

Founder and CEO

Health Rosetta Certified

After 22 years in the healthcare arena, John has seen it all. Including a broken neck with a $275,000 medical bill (he was able to get reduced to $62.4K for the employer) and a 10X upcharge for the anti-venom on a backyard snake bite (fought and won with a refund of $32,860). His frustration with a system that didn’t deliver benefits that actually benefited anyone (since when is a $5000 Max Out of Pocket a “benefit”?) was what drove the creation of K2 Advisors Group.

The burden of healthcare costs is crippling working Americans. John is working to change that… one company at a time.


When not fighting the good fight, you'll find John playing sports with his kids, cooking with his talented wife or scaling mountains around the world. After summiting Kilimanjaro twice, once with his son and daughter to raise funds and awareness for a medical clinic in remote Kenya, John is currently planning to summit Denali.

Founder & Partner

As a founding Partner, Jim wanted to create something that actually made healthcare better for people. He loves rolling up his sleeves and jumping into a client's case to discover what is broken so it can be repaired.

Jim is at heart a man of faith and family.


Born and raised in Columbia, SC and an Upstater since 2009, he is the father of seven amazing children and the husband of an incredible wife he adores. (Jim is also a pet dad to two adorable pups that get to visit the office with him.)

Jim's favorite quote comes from his father: "That's no mountain for a climber."
